Embleton Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade

We are investing over £3 million to improve storm and biological treatment at Embleton sewage treatment works to meet the demands of an increasing population in the Embleton catchment. Our sewage treatment works aid NWL in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Gabrielle Ward


Work has continued to progress well on site over the last few weeks. 

The old site compound area is starting to look very different, with the stone being stripped down to subgrade ready for the topsoil and seeding. I've added a 'before and after' comparison photo below.

The Motor Control Center panels have been installed, with the electrical cables currently ongoing.

Pipework to the storm tank is now complete, while the electrical work is underway. 

I'll be posting more updates in the upcoming weeks.

As always, we thank you for your continued patience and support.
